This unique program bridges the gap between production and engineering by creating a well-defined graduate who has knowledge of machining and computer aided drafting. The Design Technology program offers extensive “hands-on” and “hands-off” machining applications in both manual and computer-aided manufacturing. You will learn to prepare detailed working drawings for the manufacturing industry. These drawings will be created in both two-dimensional and parametric modeling software, abiding by industry recognized standards. This two-year program will provide many interactive scenarios between machining and drafting. The program prides itself in operating state-of-the-art equipment and software currently being used by area manufacturers. This program benefits the student by increasing the skills needed in the machining and drafting worlds, allowing for a diversified graduate. Graduating from the Design Technology program prepares you to work as a drafting technician, machinist, CNC programmer, shop supervisor, or to start your own business venture. This degree will allow the graduate numerous employment opportunities throughout the United States.
